The Official Pokemon YouTube channel has hosted its latest Pokemon Presents. In this stream, they shared some fascinating updates for the upcoming Diamond and Pearl remakes, as well as their original title, Pokemon Legends- Arceus. Although there was very little Pokemon TCG related news, they did share plenty of exciting details for video game fans.
Pokemon Legends – Arceus
Pokemon’s open-world game, Pokemon Legends, was showcased in the Pokemon Presents event, showing an ancient and diverse world full of Pokemon roaming the wilderness. This game has some serious Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild vibes and lets the player roam the vastness of Hisuia, battle Pokemon and capture them. This game feels like Pokemon Colosseum that was released on the GameCube back in 2003. This is especially true with the Pokemon turning red-eyed and violent, much like the Shadow Pokemon of the previous title. In Pokemon Legends-Arceus, you will also be able to mount Pokemon to help you cross the expanse. You can advance your paper version of the Pokedex by meeting and capturing Pokemon throughout the game. New Pokemon versions will feature in the game, such as Hisuian Braviary and Hisuian Growlithe, who have adapted to the harsh terrain.
Arceus V Promo
Just in time for the upcoming Pokemon Legends title, an Arceus V Promo has been revealed, which will be given away in Japan as an early purchase incentive for Pokemon Legends – Arceus.
Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
The presentation gave a few more details on the upcoming Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl remakes for the Nintendo Switch, as well as boasting more of its rebooted and modern graphics. The style shop returns, offering more unique looks, as well as Pokemon contests, which will allow your Pokemon to earn ribbons. Player dens will also return, along with their minigames, which will make players feel at home in the rebooted versions of Diamond and pearl. Both games will be available on November 19th with pre-orders open now.
Special Switch Lite versions with the artwork of Dialga and Palkia will also be available on November 5th, which will celebrate the 2016 version of the DS Lite, which came out alongside the original Diamond and Pearl versions.
